Richard Skelton is a British musician. Following the death of his wife Louise in 2004, he began to make music as a way of coming to terms with the tragedy. Using a number of instruments, notably guitar and violin, his music has been compared to Arvo Pärt amongst others. His recordings explicitly reference places of emotional resonance, specifically the West Pennine Moors, and the area around the sparsely populated parish of Anglezarke.

His album Landings has been compared to Brian Eno's Ambient 4: On Land in its evocation of place and memory. Skelton even goes are far as to include artefacts, such as twigs and alder catkins, from significant places in the packaging of his releases.

Most of Skelton's releases have been issued by his own Sustain-Release label - under a range of pseudonym's including A Broken Consort, Carousell and Riftmusic, as well as under his own name - in small editions of CDs with hand-crafted packaging, and often including fragments of poetry.
